Thanks for these replies! We played pass the parcel, musical statues & the Tommy Smartie thing. It was HILARIOUS!!

Thank you so much for all the suggestions - hope you all had a good Christmas x

satsuma bobbing (as for halloween apple bobbing)

egg drop (pair teams, two adults with one child) carrier bag of bits each, paper, loo rolls, selotape string etc and a raw egg each, 10 mins to build something to drop egg out of bathroom window without it breaking.

chubby bunny (taking one marshmellow at a time pop in mouth and say chubby bunny, winner is person with most in mouth still able to say chubby bunny - provide bowles to spit out at the end)

Name the christmas tune - one person on Utube music, others in teams short burst of songs for everyone to guess.

mini-snowmen - cheap tubs of icecream, value sultanas, ribbons and scrapes of paper, in pairs build a snowman on a plate.

Musical statues and/or chairs. Including the adults. Hilarious, especially when some drink has been taken.

you give them loo roll and tinsel and put them in teams...they have 3 mins to make one person in the team in to a Christmas tree

cut up christmas cards and have a race (again in teams) to make up the jigsaws

the cereal box game...bend down to pick it up in teeth, keep making the box smaller

"don't eat christmas smartie" (search for "don't eat tommy smartie" in the archives, honestly this game is AWESOME.

ice biscuits?

Scavenger hunt, hunt the thimble, musical statues and pin the tail on the reindeer.

Twister. If you haven't got a mat, do 2 person twister, where person A has to put body part X to person B's body part Y. Write lots out on little bits of paper, fold them up and put them in a handy receptacle. Call them out and have a camera handy!

Otherwise, hide and seek? Musical statues/chairs/bumps/cushions? Limbo?

they may be a bit small
it is the game where first person chooses a gift from a selection (eg you could wrap up your prizes, really fun if you wrap up a couple of boobie prizes for older children). The next person then has a choice to steal that present or open a new one. If they steal the victim gets to choose a new one. It pays to be the last to go as you can see all but one present and decide whether to steal or open. At the end you can do all sorts of variations such as anyone who hasn't stolen anything has a chance to steal or the one who has had the most things stolen off them has a chance to steal.

With your ages I would maybe do a treasure hunt for the kids or find the adult
(most adults hide and perhaps some could hide with a prize) kids are helped to find them and keep the prize.

The kids are 6,5,4,3 and 3.

Is that the one where you use 2 packs of cards?

Depending on age of children you could do steal the present game

10 adults, 5 children. Any ideas for some good games?

I've bought a whole bag of prizes, but can't think beyond pass the parcel. grin
